In the heart of Greektown, you'll find Pegasus Restaurant & Taverna's delicious Mediterranean cuisine, a fine dining atmosphere, and great service! For nearly 25 years, we've enjoyed food and people and the act of bringing them together. From the moment you enter our doors, you're treated like a member of the Pegasus Restaurant & Taverna family! Our staff serves up true Mediterranean cooking that our families grew up eating. We work to educate diners about the delights of Greek cuisine - the health benefits of indigenous ingredients like extra virgin olive oil and plant-based foods, the savory flavors of lamb, and the welcoming atmosphere. Try our unforgettable Yuvetsaki pasta with tender morsels of beef braised with fresh plum tomatoes, olive oil, wine, and herbs, or our delectable Arni Pisto - slices of prime roasted leg of lamb in natural au jus! And don't forget to pair your meal with a glass of fine wine or treat yourself to one of our famous specialty cocktails. During the Summer months, be sure to plan a trip to enjoy our spectacular veranda featuring an unmatched eastern view of the Chicago skyline. Gather your friends or family and order some Mezethes - small plates that are made for sharing and a fantastic way to sample a variety of Greek dishes. Pegasus Restaurant & Taverna is the ultimate Greektown destination for enjoying good food, family, and friends.

The food is pretty good...a nice blend of traditional and modern stepped-up flavors. The atmosphere is a bit gaudy and over the top. Wait staff is friendly and efficient. Definitely worth trying if you have been or will be going to Greektown regularly, but if you are just visiting and only have time to try one restaurant, you might consider... More

Ate here with the family on a Saturday night. Great food, reasonable prices, great atmosphere. Not rushed. The staff was what made the night- great people- fun, willing to humor us. All told a wonderful experience.

I simply love the food in this restaurant, they have a family dinner for a good price with incredible options. The only think that is really bad is that if you do not pay 20% gratuity they will treat you very bad!!! I think this is an absurd cause you can pay from 15% to 20% (this is the average... More

I'm very sorry you didn't receive the service you expected, Cristina. While I'm glad you enjoyed the food, it's no excuse for rudeness. You're right to say that the customer gets to decide on the gratuity. However, for parties of 6 or more, it is customary (yet not mandatory) to give at least 18%. As for the rude comments made...

Pegasus is located on Halsted, in Greektown, just to the west of the Chicago Loop. They serve authentic Greek cuisine that is consistently excellent. Their menu is varied and the cost is moderate, at least for Chicago. Service is outstanding - very friendly, professional and they go out of their way to be sure the customer is happy. The inside...

It has been a number of years since we ate at Pegasus but sadly this time around it was disappointing. It is still a beautiful setting and the staff although a bit slow was pleasant.

I'm sorry to hear we didn't meet your expectations this time around. We take pride in our authentic Greek dishes, so it's disappointing to hear when a guest isn't satisfied, especially someone who is a return customer. It sounds like everything else provided for a largely positive experience. Ihope you'll be able to visit soon -- we'd welcome the opportunity... More

A small place in the Greek section of Chicago. We were looking for another place and came here. We were pleasantly surprised. The menu was good as was the food. The staff here were very friendly and we ended up staying longer just to talk as it was a slow time for the restaurant.
